    !*!*!*! Frog days are in again !*!*!*!

    Not sure where to post this in the fresh water or planted.
    About 15 years ago I was a big pioneer in frogs too, loved the distinguish call of the males as most of them sound like a canary bird.
    Have bred them and the vivs are easy to setup.
    The frag room became a frog room in the last three weeks.
    Just breeding the damn fruit flies are a pain, just needed to build myself a room just for that.
    Besides these are easier to move than a reef tank in two years from now.



    I don't regret the things I did wrong............ I regret the good things I did for the wrong people.

    Lol, David.
    I know these frogs very well.
    Frogs aren't new to me and it will be a few Dendrobates, Tinctorius, Phyllobates and Ranitomeya to start out with.
    They are all from the family Posion Dart Frogs.

    You have to love the poison dart frogs so colorful! Love the habitats you did up for them! They really look great!

    I did think it was funny about the fruit flies. They seem to breed where they are not wanted and where they are not breed. Ten to 1 it is a different fruit fly than I can't get rid of. LOL

    Oh hence, these are not like regular fruit flies.
    These are special bred and can't fly or some just don't have wings, you have hydei's which are smaller than the madgastors and then there are the golden hydei's which are not from gold as that would be silly but more like a light brown color.
    Also you cycle your vivarium with springtails and purple and white isopods, these are ugly bugs that a normal pest control company will have to smoke your house out if you have them, oh boy!
    You breed the flies in 32oz cups with a special Diesel brew and in three weeks you have a few thousand or more of them.
    Breeding frogs isn't that difficult but to keep the tadpoles alive is more of a task due to our dirty air and all the molds in the Houston air.
    Keep the molds out as you make a tea from almond leaves and RODI, that reminds me I need to filter up my smart RODI from CoralVue.
    Talking about CoralVue, I need to call Chris to have my VIP pass for MACNA next weekend left at hotel desk.
    No so much for MACNA but the private party Coralvue is setting up with lots of interesting ppl in the hobby.
    Oh well that's next weekend.
